Where Are Your Manners?
February 17, 2013 § 7 Comments
Last week I sent a friendly little email to a high-end fashion denim line with high-end celebrity clientelle (hint hint, they’re newest release has extremely curved seams, distressing, and a flattering boyfriend cut), alerting them to a spelling error in their website’s company bio.
I thought they’d want to know (I always want to know) as it looks really bad to have mistakes of the sort.
Imagine my surprise, when I went back to the site to check on the error to find that it had been fixed, and they never even sent an email back saying, “Thank you.”
It wouldn’t have taken much time. It would’ve been the right thing to have done.
It got my wheels turning in regard to manners in the social media realm.
Are they not important?
Just because we don’t see the people with whom we interact, aren’t we just as inclined to follow proper decorum/human kindness/general niceness?
